After so many years of drought, California got some real rain this winter. The rain brought on a deluge of wild flowers. The flowers remind me of the ones I saw as a child while walking in the hills. Which also influenced some of my designs. So I decided to go to the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve as the wild flowers were first blooming. It was so beautiful! My mom loved going to see the wild flowers bloom. All those hills filled with color made her happy. So this year's tremendous bloom was a little heart breaking. My mom hoped she would live long enough to see the spectacular bloom after the winter rains. But she left us in January. So I walked with my brother to see the beautiful flowers and thought of her.
I am working on some new flower designs, but in the meantime, here’s are some of my flower inspired letterpress pieces. You can find flowers in my cards, buckslips, notecards, coasters and journals.
